What to expect
Located about 50 km south of Krabi town in Amphur Klong Thom the Hot Springs (called Namtok Rawn in Thai) are close to the Emerald Pool. Where the hot springs mix with cool streams, pools of water are formed with temperatures of 40-50 degrees Celcius.
These hot springs are a popular attraction with local Thais on weekends and public holidays. For some people, watching the locals play is a tourist attraction in itself but if you prefer to enjoy the pools with fewer other people around it’s best to visit midweek.
The Emerald pool is 15 minutes drive from the hot springs. It’s a very beautiful 1400m walk to the pool along a raised path through the rain forest. Walk a further 600m from the Emerald pool, passing the Hermit shrine on the way, and you reach the Blue pool.
On the return journey to Krabi visit the Tiger Cave temple which is worth a short visit especially if you are fit enough to climb the 1237 steep steps to the mountain top viewpoint. There is also a shorter nature trail and plenty of hungry monkeys.
